STFL bit 4 and 5 are just indications to the guest, which TLB entries an
IDTE call will clear. These are performance indicators for the guest.

STFL bit 4:
    the invalidation-and-clearing operation by
    selectively clearing TLB segment-table entries
    when a segment-table entry or entries are
    invalidated. IDTE also performs the clearing-by-
    ASCE operation. Unless bit 4 is one, IDTE simply
    purges all TLBs. Bit 3 is one if bit 4 is one.

We can simply set STFL bit 4 ("idtes") and still purge the complete TLB.
Purging more than advertised is never bad. E.g. Linux doesn't even care
about this bit. We can optimized this later.
This is helpful, as the z9 base model contains this facility.

STFL bit 5 (clearing TLB region-table-entries) was never implemented on
real HW, therefore we can simply ignore it for now.
